Todd Phillips JOKER Gets A HARD R-Rating

jp.jpg

It is hard to believe that anyone thought that the upcoming JOKER movie starring Joaquin Phoenix would get any other rating than R. Now it is officially confirmed to be an R-rated film and a HARD R at that. The films rating was given by the Motion Picture Association of America.  According to the movie’s official website, the Clown Prince of Crime’s first solo movie will feature, “Strong Bloody Violence, Disturbing Behavior, Language and Brief Sexual Images.” 
It has been constantly going around that the Todd Phillips directed film would be aimed at a much older movie as this is not the ordinary comic book movie. One of the main things that has been said is that there will be “disturbing behavior”. So on top of what we have seen in the trailers that give off the vibes a lot of weird stuff will happen.

A new still from the film has been released and it is more of Joaquin in the makeup, which is not a bad thing at all. If these photos showed us more Arthur Fleck than Joker there would be an uproar.

Keep in mind a new trailer will be dropping at the end of the month as well.

MOON KNIGHT Is Coming To Disney Plus

Marvel Studios setting up two new phases had many wondering which would be the next. There are many cult favorites that people were hopeful for and it seems  to be coming to fruition.

MOON KNIGHT is being produced by Marvel Studios as a live action show that is coming to Disney plus. The announcement was made today at the D23 Expo currently happening in Anaheim.

Marvel Studios Kevin Feige, on the D23 stage said that MOON KNIGHT will be an “action adventure series” about a mercenary left for dead in the desert.

This next phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is going to be a bit more weird and different from what has already been established so this makes sense. it seems that the Warren Ellis run of Moon Knight comics would be perfect for a television series since it shifts between genres in each issues according to Marc Spector’s different personalities. That’s something that could easily be applied to the episodic format and later connect into the larger picture.

There have been many rumors floating around about  Keanu Reeves being the perfect person to play Moon Knight, even AVENGERS: ENDGAME co-directors Anthony & Joe Russo even agreed as much. Combine that with the fact that there have been talks about Keanu Reeves taking some kind of role in the MCU, and that certainly raises our eyebrows a bit.

Is Jon Snow Headed To The MCU

Robb Stark (Richard Madden) is already going ETERNAL into the Marvel Cinematic Universe but could his once half brother, Jon Snow be heading down the same road.

According to Deadline, it seems that GAME OF THRONES star, Kit Harrington is a making his way into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Now which exact film has yet to be announced.

All of current buzz around Marvel during this weekend’s D23 Expo has kept an official announcent and details under wraps until t÷ powers that be decide when ita best to reveal the news. But it can be safe to assume we will find out before the weekend is concluded.

Who would you like to see Harrington play or what film would you like see him in?

 

Ms. Marvel Is Coming To Disney Plus

CAPTAIN MARVEL was a blockbuster success for Marvel Studios and now the superhero production studio is focusing on another marvelous hero.

Marvel is ,according to The Hollywood Reporter, developing a live-action series for the Disney+ streaming platform and will be based on its acclaimed comic MS. MARVEL, hiring writer Bisha K. Ali to write and act as showrunner. Ali is a comedian who is currently a staff writer on Hulu’s remake of FOUR WEDDINGS AND A FUNERAL.

There is the possibility that the official announcement could be made during the Friday presentation at the D23 Expo currently happening in Anaheim.

Now for those who may be unfamiliar with the character, Ms. Marvel has been around since 1976, with the character Carol Danvers using the name for her crime-fighting escapades.

The latest version which many have gravitated to and wanted to see done as a live action series or film, is a teenager named Kamela Khan. Who’s identity as a Pakistani American, living in a religious family in New Jersey all while trying to find her own way, have been a major focus of the stories. Her powers have been described as polymorphous, meaning she has the ability to stretch and change her shape.

Currently there is no timetable set for the show and it unclear whether the show will fit into the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe as Marvel is developing several other shows for the streamer that will be tied to the overall film universe. These include THE FALCON AND THE WINTER SOLDIER, to debut in late 2020; WANDAVISION, to debut in spring 2021; LOKI, also for early 2021; and HAWKEYE, for late 2021.

Will We Possibly No Longer See Spider-Man In The MCU

I guess the saying is “it was fun while it lasted”, because it seems as if the wall crawler may no longer be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Marvel Studios president, Kevin Feige won’t produce any further Spider-Man films because of an inability by Disney and Sony Pictures to reach new terms that would have given the former a co-financing stake going forward. This is reportedly due to a dispute that has taken place over the past few months at the top of Disney and Sony has essentially nixed Feige, and the future involvement of Marvel from the Spider-Man universe, as reported by DEADLINE.

Now which was initially thought as only one more Marvel Studios/Sony Pictures co-produced Spider-Man film is said to be two actually that are meant to have director Jon Watts and Tom Holland right at the forefront  Unless something dramatic happens, Feige won’t be the lead creative producer of those pictures.

The main reason for this drastic fallout is of course money and when you here some of the specifics you can see why neither side wanted to really budge.  Disney asked that future Spider-Man films be a 50/50 co-financing arrangement between the studios, and there were discussions that this might extend to other films in the Spider-Man universe. Sony turned that offer down plain and simple and possibly never came back to the table with a counter off. The heads of Sony, Tom Rothman and Tony Vinciquerra simply didn’t want to share its biggest franchise. Keep in mind SPIDER-MAN FAR FROM HOME just became Sony’s highest grossing property every surpassing SKYFALL and generating $1.109 billion. Sony proposed keeping the current deal going under the current terms where Marvel receives in the range of 5% of first dollar gross, sources said. Disney refused.

In Sony’s defense they also had another reason for not wanting to split the production cost as Marvel keeps all of the merchandising for Spidey. Then to give up half of their universe to which they own the rights to may have been too much. But Sony seems to be in a good position as they hold the right to many other Spider-Man based characters including the Tom Hardy starring VENOM which the sequel is being directed by Andy Serkis,  MORBIUS starring Jared Leto, not to mention their Oscar winning animated SPIDERMAN INTO THE SPIDER VERSE.

Currently Marvel Studios/Disney, Feige nor Sony Pictures have commented.
